As a self-guiding nature trail, this hike doesn’t get a lot of attention from the “hardcore” hiking crowd. Nature trails are for tourists, some might say. That’s a shame because this is one of the best hikes in the park for its length. In early spring wildflowers are abundant. The trail passes by the cascading LeConte Creek and the Ogle Tub Mill. Beyond the mill the trail passes through a forest set amidst a jumble of huge, mossy boulders. Finally, there’s the Ogle Place itself, a restored cabin and barn open for exploring. Those hard-core hikers don’t know what they’re missing.
